This weekend the Cats headed east to Morgantown, WV to take on the Mountaineers, and came home with two victories. Each coming in blowout fashion. The Wildcats now sit at 12-1-1 for the season.
Friday the Cats won by a score of 8-3. Goals were scored by Ryan Duffy, Blake Riley, Gary Eastlack, Max Proctor, Jake Deemer, Mike DeAngelis, Jordan Shannon, and Conor Gilbert. Ryan Duffy also had to strap the pads on and finish the game in net after a pile up into Williams and the UK net. Williams would be fine and play the next game, and come up huge. So Duffy scored a goal and recorded saves. That’s a gamer there.
On Saturday the goals kept coming as UK won 9-0, as the Cats would continue the energy from the night before and score in bunches. Jimmy Kasch would net a hat trick and Duffy would score twice. Eastlack, Proctor, Deemer, and Jack Higgins would all score a goal as well. Eric Williams would bounce back from the net crashing of the night before to get his fifth shutout of the season! I think it’s time we pass the nickname “The Great Wall of Kentucky” on to Williams after the start of the season he has had.
The Cats will be back home this coming weekend against Stevenson Friday and Saturday night. Both games start at midnight and are $7 admission. Come early and be LOUD.
